Amber M Aesthetics is a new Hydrafacial salon that recently opened in Downtown Long Beach. While the salon has always been a dream for owner Amber Miller, she said it was important to her to be more than a business operator.

Miller said she wants to be an example to young women and prove they can do anything they want, and she is not waiting until her business is well established in the community before she gives back.

This brand-new business has partnered with Pacific Gateway, Long Beach’s workforce development network, to employ local students looking for a job. The students have opening and closing duties and help with social media marketing.

This week’s episode of “The Word” podcast shows how these students are learning more than business skills and how Amber Miller teaches them lessons they can carry into adulthood.
